Meet the Host

Kevin Walsh

Kevin Walsh is the host of the Why I Read Nonfiction podcast. He reads because he loves to. “If a book makes someone laugh, cry, feel angry or swell with pride, they’re probably thinking about something in their life,” Kevin says. “They chose that book for a reason, and I want to know why.” Kevin believes readers are the most fascinating people on earth because they always have something to look forward to and draw from. Most are flattered to talk about their reading routine. What they don’t know is how interesting that process is, and they are.

Currently he’s a sports anchor and reporter for NBC 10 Boston, NBC Sports Boston and New England Cable News. 

Kevin has written three books: The Marrow in Me, Follow the Dog Home and The Perfect Catch.
